On June 5th, 2020, humanity will witness the return of the full moon in the sign of Sagittarius and also a lunar eclipse. Tonight’s full moon is known as a Strawberry Moon. It’s interesting to note that Native Americans named each full moon in accordance with what was occurring during the farming season. The Full Strawberry Moon signaled to the Algonquin tribes in eastern North America that it was time to gather wild strawberries. Additionally, the moon’s hue is slightly redder or pinkish than normal, which contributes greatly to its title.
The Strawberry Moon is a time of good fortune and discovery. As the last full moon of the spring season, it represents a small harvest in the aspect of life that endears the location of Sagittarius in our natal charts. Despite the disparity of world events, this full moon will provide many of us with the strength to endure through these turbulent times and discover some hidden resolve about ourselves that will prove to be of great value in the future. Ironically, the Lunar Eclipse falls at 14 degrees of Sagittarius, which will open up a portal of new knowledge about ourselves and our life’s purpose.
